Junior Great Books

Junior Great Books helps students develop the capacity to gain a deeper understanding of what they read, so that ultimately they become better thinkers. Through careful reading and spirited discussion, students learn to respect and value their ideas and the ideas of others. Parent volunteers, who have been trained in the shared inquiry method of learning, lead the discussions offered to all students at Anchorage. In shared inquiry, leaders ask probing questions about the stories students have read. Students answer with their own interpretations, supporting their ideas with evidence from the text.Sponsor: Stephanie Liford
